The Teradata MultiLoad utility is an efficient way to deal with batch maintenance of large databases. Teradata MultiLoad is a command-driven utility for fast, high-volume maintenance on multiple tables and views in Teradata Database.

The table or view in the database receiving the data can be any existing table or view for which privileges for maintenance tasks have been granted.
Note: Full tape support is not available for any function in Teradata MultiLoad for network-attached client systems. To import data from a tape, a custom access module that interfaces with the tape device must be written. For information about how to write a custom access module, L the Teradata Tools and Utilities Access Module Programmer Guide (B035‑2424).
